Responsible tech playbook

As technology becomes more and more central to peoples' lives, and to what businesses do, and how they succeed, the ethics of technology must come into sharper focus.


Despite technology becoming a critical part of what enterprises do, it's not always clear how to approach and apply technology in an ethical or responsible way. 


As we explored in Perspectives, the truth is, to produce positive ethical outcomes and minimize risks, technology has to be managed and monitored as actively as any other aspect of the business - perhaps even more so.


The Responsible tech playbook is a collection of tools, methods, and frameworks that help you to assess, model and mitigate values and risks of the software you are creating with a special emphasis on the impact of your work on the individual and society.

While our industry doesn’t have an analogue to the Hippocratic Oath or professional licensing standards, as found in other professions, we still need to consider what responsibilities we have to those who use the technology that we build, as well as those who are invisible during the design process. This playbook is a way to start building responsible tech from the beginning.
